Blocking images


Say that a user doesn’t want to see images posted by other users. Is there an option to view posts as text only?

We have a support forum in which users post images, sometimes these images are triggering for certain users. Just wanted to know if there is a way to block images from being displayed while browsing.

All the best.

There is no such option out of the box, but sounds like something simple that could be built as either a filter on the user browser extensions or as a Discourse theme-component if you think this is something that would be used by more than one person.


thanks for this.

Yes, it would be as an option for everyone. a sort of “Disable Images” option in the personal preference.

Good to know and we’ll have to evaluate if we really need the option.

Thanks again.
